Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

SHARP COPIER AL-1631

I just recently changed the toner in my machine. When you get ready to print the copies a loud noise starts. It sounds like a lawn mower.
Any suggestions to fix this problem.

    It sounds like the gears are not meshing if the copier has a **** shell design or the fuser rollers have some type of spring release

    turn machine off open doors and areas you loaded toner re close firmly if you had a toner cartridge it is not seating properly


    Also check paper feed area to make sure it is not overloaded

2 things:
1. Fusing Unit has to be replaced- worn or broken gear
and/or
2. Main Drive clutch has to be replaced.

Either way it has to be done by a trained technician.

A loud clicking sound


This means that a gear is jammed or broken somewhere. Check for waste full and empty or drum waste roller and unblock the jammed toner inside that unit or check fuser gear if broken then replace it.

Noises when printing copies


Take the new cart. out and reinstall the old cart. Does the noise disappear? I would tap and shake the toner cart. BUT BE CAREFULL, the cart is ready to spill toner. On the box and in the instructions it tells you, or should, that you must shake and tap the outside of the cart. This is due to settling and the toner maybe packed. By tapping and shaking it will feel the toner. If the toner is packed it will put undue pressure on the augers inside the toner cart. and cause a grinding noise. If after tapping and shaking, reinstall the new cart. and check. If everything is ok -- great. If the noise remains contact the company your purchased the cart. from and ask for a replacement. These cart. are mass produced and mostly reused ( refurbed). Parts wear now and they do not replace the inside parts, they just repack with toner and seal.
